The last 8 weeks have been the worst since I started suffering from asthma 17 years ago. It started with a chest infection that dragged on and required 3 courses of antibiotics and steroids. Three weeks ago 1 went to a and e as I coughed so badly I felt my rib pop and was worried i had done something bad. Turns out this is the sound you can feel when you pull your ribs. I had just started to heal when last night the same thing happened but as my ribs hadn’t fully healed the pain this time was unbearable. I can’t do anything myself at the moment which I find so hard as I never have been one to rely on anyone especially when it comes to even needing help showering and daily things like that. Has anyone else experienced this pain, any suggestions to help with the pain. I am now scared to cough! I can’t sleep because of the pain and my mental health is at breaking point!
